ATHENS, Greece - This year, for the first time, Galaxy restaurant on the top floor of Hilton Athens will be welcoming guests throughout the winter season. In a specifically designed area within the Galaxy bar, the winter version of this fashionable restaurant will offer guests an unforgettable dining experience.

Executive Chef Yannis Manikis, who is Greek-Canadian, has created a new menu with a cosmopolitan character emphasizing seasonal products. Guests can try the Arugula salad with pecans, fresh blueberries and stilton cheese, roasted beets with ricotta and red wine vinaigrette and the deconstructed Caesar salad with egg in parmesan crust. Prime meat cuts, such us the Black Angus rib eye and T-bone, are still on the menu as a Galaxy specialty. There are also new suggestions on the sushi menu: Aomori with smoked salmon, avocado and apple; Fujiyama with crab, asparagus and macadamia nuts or Iwate with surimi, avocado and sesame seeds. As for the desserts, Yannis has created a selection of intense taste experiences, such as the Chocolate Trilogy with bitter, milk and white chocolate or the Myrtle Sensation in the form of mousse, macaron, cheesecake and tart.

Dinner seating options include the exclusive top table for intimate groups of four to five people with breathtaking views, tables overlooking the illuminated Vassilissis Sofias avenue and the heated outdoor deck. In Galaxy, the city lights become one with the impressive roof lighting and the stars and galaxies, creating amazing scenery to enjoy whilst feasting on the fantastic culinary offerings. Guests can start their evening with a signature cocktail while the new team of DJs led by Kostas Zikos takes to decks, swinging to the sounds of lounge, nu disco music, soulful and deep house.
